Santa comes from very old and low-yielding, own-rooted Rosa del Perú (Moscatel Negro) vines grown at high elevation in Tecate. The grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented without temperature control in 450L concrete tinajas with 30 days of maceration, raised in a mix of steel tank and used French barrels over winter, and bottled without fining or filtration and only 10 ppm of added SO2. A lively and vertical vin de soif, Santa is almost rosé colored in the glass, delicately floral, with red and dark fruits and juicy acidity. A lovely red wine to serve chilled with charcuterie and cheeses, duck breast or pork.
